Topic: When/how does a change to routes.rb take effect?

I had this in routes.rb:

map.connect '', :controller => 'home', :action => 'splash'

and changed it to
map.connect '', :controller => 'home', :action => 'show'

I bounced Lighty and restarted my app. When I hit http://www.racebucket.com it's still rounting to /home/splash not /home/show.

Are you certain the server fully restarted and the file with the changes has been properly uploaded to that server? It should just work then.

The routes.rb file is correct. I just checked it again. Not sure what you mean about fully restarted. I stopped Lighty, then my app, then started Lighty, then my app.

I hadn't deleted the index.html file from /public. That did it :-)
